Some things aren’t for everyone. Most people love cheese. I hate it. Most people don’t enjoy golfing. I love it. The same is true for Murphy Beds and Cabinet Murphy Bed. You may have heard people say how much they would like to have a Murphy Bed in their home. There are also plenty of reasons why there are people who don’t want to own a Cabinet Murphy Bed. We’ll get to those reasons, but first, let’s explain what a Cabinet Murphy Bed is.
What Is A Cabinet Murphy Bed?
Murphy Cabinet Beds are sometimes called Chest Beds. They are designed for rooms that could use more space or function in multiple ways. This innovative bed easily folds up into a great-looking cabinet when it is not being used for sleeping. The top of the cabinet is always stationary. This makes it available for storage of anything the owner wants to display. Most of the models also have a large drawer for additional storage that is accessible both when the bed is open for use and closed into the cabinet position. This is typically a good spot to keep your pillows, blankets, and anything else that goes with the bed. Sounds pretty good right? So why is it that people would be opposed to having one of these beds? I’m glad you asked.
No Installation Required!
One aspect of the Cabinet Murphy Bed that makes it unique is the fact that it is freestanding. This means that it does not need to attach in any way to your wall or floor. What is wrong with that? Well, some people just can’t make a decision. The last thing they want is options. Does it go in front of a window? Does it go under the TV? Which room should it be in? It could go on and on. They could spend more time worrying about their options and changing their minds than actually using the bed itself.
Then, there are people who like to do things the hard way and enjoy the challenge of trying to attach their Murphy Bed to the floor or wall. They won’t get to have that experience with a Cabinet Murphy Bed. Having a bed delivered with easy to follow instructions and getting it set up in less than 10 steps? That’s no fun!
Your ability to get a good night of sleep can be totally dependant on the quality of the mattress you are using. A good, comfortable mattress like the 6” gel-infused memory foam mattress (designed with comfort and durability in mind) could mean trouble for some people. We all know people who tend to sleep more than they should or need to. And if they are doing that now, just think how much worse that problem could become with a mattress that has seams that are specially designed to mold together so you can’t feel them. I’m getting sleepy just thinking about it!
Focus On Quality
There can be quite a difference in the quality of one Cabinet Murphy Bed (or any style of Murphy Bed) to another. This should be a major consideration when you are deciding whether to get a Cabinet Murphy Bed and who to get it from. For example, if you invest in a Cabinet Murphy Bed from a company like Wilding Wallbeds that takes pride in being an industry leader in quality and durability, you will be at risk of people who see and use that bed giving you all sorts of compliments about it. Some people just don’t feel comfortable receiving that sort of attention all the time.
You will also be at risk of having the people that stay with you wanting to come back to visit time and time again. This could be especially worrisome if those visitors are the in-laws that you don’t get along with very well. Or your children’s friends that always leave a mess behind when they leave.
The Other Stuff
Here are some of the additional pieces of information about the Murphy Cabinet Beds that may need consideration.
- The Murphy Cabinet Bed is tested to 600 lbs. This means two adults will be able to sleep comfortably and safely without issue. This is a problem for two kinds of people. Anyone who weighs-in at more than 600 lbs is not going to be a good fit for a Cabinet Murphy Bed. Also, people who like to sleep by themselves won’t be able to say that they need the bed to themselves because it can’t fit two adults.
- These beds come with handy flip-up nightstands so there is a convenient place to store your cell phone, glasses, or anything else you want to have close by. They also have a built-in power outlet that plugs into any wall plug and gives your guest access to two 110v outlets and two USBs outlets for charging. Even if you are one of the people who have no desire for a Cabinet Murphy Bed, you won’t complain about these handy features.
Adding a Cabinet Murphy Bed to your home or office can make a huge difference in your space. So if you don’t want to be stuck living with a beautiful piece of furniture that will make your life more comfortable — definitely do not give Wilding Wallbeds a call.
